Sunshine On the Hill
During the 2nd Annual Sunshine on the Hill, representatives from Sunshine Board leadership and home office staff visited Ottawa to update Members of Parliament on Sunshine's important work. Meetings were held with various MPs in addition to a meet and greet reception hosted by The Speaker of the House, The Honourable Geoff Regan. Guests of honour, the Rondeau family - Neil, Christine, Carol, Dylan, Joelle, and Adrianna, shared their Sunshine experience with the distinguished audience assembled in the Speaker’s Salon on Parliament Hill.
Attendees of the reception received a Sunshine Bear from the WINNERS/HomeSense Spread a Little Sunshine Campaign. As the MP’s were called to vote, several Sunshine Bears could be seen in the House of Commons – a first for Sunshine Bear!
